Every month or so Brooke and I pick a different restaurant to go for a weekend brunch. Whether we go for cheap and cheerful at The Diner or upmarket and expensive in one of the delis on Westbourne Grove, we always end up spending a fortune as Bloody Marys lead into bottles of wine which lend themselves to a long afternoon shopping trip. This weekend we decided enough was enough and we might as well go all out from the get-go, so we booked our brunch at The Delaunay, the Aldwych sister restaurant to The Wolseley. And if we were going somewhere fancy to stuff our faces, we might as well dress for the occasion...
I really love this Won hundred t-shirt from the AW collection kindly lent to me by the ladies of Varg. The softly marled mustard yellow is fresh and summery (there was a hint of sunshine when I left Fort Duck), and the rolled up sleeves give it that ironic hipster edge which comes across rather James Dean-y when paired with my slicked back hair. It also went rather nicely with these SS wool trousers by Baartmans and Siegel, a relatively new brand you might be seeing a little bit more of on here in the next week or so. Alright, so I'm still going through a 'menswear' phase, but at least it's totes chic, n'est-ce pas?
Anyway, if you really can't stand to look at any more photos of me dressed like a man, focus on the delicious food from The Delaunay. My spiced-aubergine stuffed pepper was delicious if a little light for the main meal of the day, but the coupe Seville, with blood orange sorbet, oranges, candied orange and tuile, completely finished me off (and matched my outfit, score).
